Improve installation of Component Pack - Helm

The Component Pack installation guide describes 10 Helm charts that need to be installed. We automated the installation process, so the Helm charts are installed within less than a minute.

 It looks like the orient-web-client pod require the redis-sentinel pods to be up and running before they are started, otherwise they fail until the orient-web-client pods are restarted.

 We fixed this by requiring the redis-sentinel pods to be up an running before continuing with the installation of the orientme Helm chart.

The installation steps do kind of state that you are supposed to check after every Helm chart installation whether the pods are up and running. We just try, as always, to automate manual steps as much as possible and didn't realize it is a hard requirement for one set of pods to be up and running for another set of pods.

Desired function:

Maybe it's also possible to design the pods in a way where the order and speed of the Helm chart deployments is NOT important.
